  • The holidays came early as Disney+ released a teaser for the highly-anticipated “Doctor Who” Christmas Special, “The Church on Ruby Road,” ahead of the December 25 premiere (available at 9:55 a.m. PT / 12:55 p.m. PT).
  • The Christmas Special welcomes Ncuti Gatwa as The Fifteenth Doctor and Millie Gibson as his new companion, Ruby Sunday.
  • Additional cast in the special includes: Davina McCall (herself), Michelle Greenidge (Carla Sunday), Angela Wynter (Cherry Sunday) and Anita Dobson (Mrs. Flood).
  • About the special: Long ago on Christmas Eve, a baby was abandoned in the snow. Today, Ruby Sunday meets the Doctor, stolen babies, goblins and perhaps the secret of her birth.
  • Earlier today, Gatwa and Gibson pushed the button to light the London Eye landmark in the colors of the iconic “Doctor Who” Time Vortex earlier to celebrate the premiere.
  • Additionally, a blue carpet world premiere screening of the Christmas Special and Q&A with Gatwa, Gibson and showrunner Russell T Davies took place at the British Film Institute, Southbank today.
